Not only people can have a handicap / disability and are for example one patient lift reliant. An animal can also be affected. Then a boarding aid for the four-legged is needed to easily get into the car. And dogs often become necessary when the loyal companion is getting old. Often, such ramps but also for very large, heavy, or very small dogs, and puppies needed. The selection is great. Which materials are most suitable and which advantages and disadvantages the different transport ramps have is shown here. So you find the best Petwalk for your dog.
When does your dog need an animal ramp?
Not only in humans, the joints become cumbersome in old age. Even your dog is jumping more difficult. Your four-legged friend then needs special support to get into the car. Especially when it comes to big and heavy dogs that can not be easily lifted into the car, such a dog light is worthwhile. A ramp can also be necessary for dogs who can not jump because they are injured or too small. The use is also advisable in puppies, so that the joints are spared.
Which mechanisms and materials exist and which advantages and disadvantages arise?
In addition to the telescopic ramp, there are also ramps, which are shaped like stairs, and folding ramps. The foldable animal ramps are easy to use, but they are also very bulky and pack a lot. In addition, such an entry aid is quite inflexible because it can only be folded out to a small extent. The advantages, however, lie in the ease of use. You can unfold the dog ramp with one hand, the risk of injury is low. In addition, nothing can ice up here in winter. The dog stairs have advantages and disadvantages as well as the foldable car ramps.
or use a telescopic ramp
The telescopic ramp can be extended and adjusted continuously. So you can adjust the animal ramp individually and also use it in / on other cars, as different heights can be overcome. The telescopic ramp also has advantages in terms of packing size, as this is smaller than comparable folding animal ramps. One disadvantage, however, is that the mechanism could freeze up in winter. The connection points are also prone to damage. With all ramps, of course, you have to pay attention to the permissible weight, as the ramps are available for different weight classes. There are also differences in the material. For example, there are ramps made of aluminum, which are light and stable, and ramps made of a mixture of aluminum and plastic, which are light and flexible. Mixtures of this type are particularly well suited because they combine all the advantages of the materials. Plastic is light, stable and easy to clean, but less durable. Aluminum, on the other hand, is stable and does not rust, but can get hot in summer, which is why you should pay attention to a mix and an anti-slip coating, which is also non-slip in the rain. In addition, the contact surface should be made of non-slip rubber or foam.
